Musical Youth – The Artist/s

Musical Youth is a British Jamaican reggae band formed in 1979 in Birmingham, England. They are best remembered for their successful 1982 single “Pass the Dutchie”, which became a number 1 hit around the world. The band recorded two studio albums, and released a number of successful singles throughout 1982 and 1983, including a collaboration with Donna Summer. Musical Youth earned a Grammy Award nomination before disbanding in 1985 after a series of personal problems. Band members included; Frederick Waite Jr, Michael Grant, Kelvin Grant, Patrick Waite and Dennis Seaton.

Pass The Dutchie – The Song

Pass The Dutchie is a song produced by Toney Owens from Kingston and the British Jamaican reggae band Musical Youth, taken from their debut studio album, The Youth of Today (1982). The reggae song was a major hit, peaking at number one on the UK Singles Chart. Outside the United Kingdom, it peaked within the top ten of the charts in the United States and sold over 5 million copies worldwide. The lyrics were changed to make the song more acceptable to radio stations around the world. The offending word was changed to Dutchie which, though similar in sound, actually means a cast iron cooking pot.
